    Here are some paintings by Paul Bachem, a plein air painter from New York. I have several more paintings by him in my collection. He studied with Harold R. Stevenson and Alma Gallanos Stevenson and had a 30 year career as an illustrator before retiring and focusing on plein air painting. His work is relatively inexpensive, if you want some original art by an accomplished artist. I paid for several of my paintings over a few months. Plein air painting is one of my favorite styles of painting. I am no longer collecting paintings, however, I will very rarely rescue something from a thrift shop to save it from an uncertain fate if it is not too large.

    Paul has a web site: https://www.paulbachem.com/

    "Light and Geometry", Paul Bachem, 11" x 14", oil on foam board. I immediately liked this painting and wanted it but had some life stuff going on so passed on it. A couple of years later, I found it was still on Paul's web site and bought it. I guess it is not to everyone's taste... I am a light and shadow freak, and blustery weather lover, though.

    "Red House on a Hill", Paul Bachem, 11" x 14", oil on canvas board. I really liked this painting at the time it was painted, but cogitated a bit too long and someone else snapped it up. Sucker for winter scenes, I am. A few years later, I found it on the secondary market and was able to add it to my collection after all.

    "Sunday Morning, Field 5", Paul Bachem, 11" x 14", oil on canvas. I spoiled this for someone else. While Paul was painting this one on location, a passerby stopped to chat with him and expressed interest in buying it as they had played on this field. Not long after I spotted it on Paul's web site and bought it. Paul thought I was the person who had expressed an interest in it. I didn't find that out until later. There will be an estate sale someday, so all hope is not lost..

    "Moonrise", 8" x 10", oil on board, this was a sketch for a larger painting. No story with this one, except that I wish I had spotted the large version before it was sold.

      "Light and Geometry" is actually the best in terms of theory of visual arts.

      plein air, French term for painting artistic subjects on a canvas or board outside. Love this series of outdoor scenes. Thanks for posting Kevin.

      @IVAN49 - Agree. I think was probably a practice/exploration piece that made it to the stuff that was for sale. All of his fine art work is on hardboard, gessoed MDF, wood, etc. This is the only piece I have ever seen that was on foam board.

      @poticheman - Thanks!

      @truthordare - Thanks Lisa!

      Thanks for taking a look at my PB paintings Lisa, blunderbuss2, Thomas, poticheman, MALKEY and IVAN49!

      Thanks for your comment renedijkstra! I like that one, too. There is a lot of subtle motion in it. Paul is pretty good. Many of his paintings are eye catching.
